The flight was early in the morning at 6.15 am. The plane was ready to load on time but due to ice on the walkway the captain refused to load on safety reasons which was quite understandable.Pity no-one thought to check this out before. It took airport staff thirty minutes to locate a bag of salt and then another thirty minutes to remove the ice. Loading then began without any incidents. The flight itself was uneventful until landing when the captain informed us that there was a high wind at our destination and it was going to be a bit bumpy which was rather an understatement. We had the bumpyest landing ever, but at least we did land safely in the end.
